the second term. so as you wonder, halfway through they wonder why they bothered to get re-elected but i think president obama is in a position to put pressure on the congress because of the nature in which he won. he demonstrated there is now at the presidential level a pretty reliable consistent majority coalition that democrats have. and there's incentive for republicans to try to shake up this electoral alignment. and i think that gives him some leverage on several issues. guns to some extent. immigration even more so. >> and certainly we've seen a change in the president in the last few weeks. is this something that we can expect in the second term, do you think, overall, a more aggressive president obama? >> i think clearly. look what happened here. again, i go back to the election. democrats have often been con strained on some of these issues. guns is a perfect issue. we went over a decade where democrats didn't talk about the issue, largely by the fear of losing conservative white voters, blue collar voters, older voters. the president lost all those voters. he did badly with

, courage, and not so concerned about whether or not they'll get re-elected. >> senator feinstein obviously saying it's an juuphill battle, but she pointed to what the voters want. 54%, 44% do not support. obviously, by party, if you broke that down, it could be different. but, again, this question to you. if there is the will to do not a lot on guns, but something, is this the something? >> i think absolutely not. and i think it's really important that you noted that statistic early on. but another thing to note is a lot of the folks who answer that question don't necessarily know what an assault rifle is. these assault weapons are designed essentially by cosmetic features that the gun has, like the kind of grip that the gun has. these are not machine guns. assault weapons, you fire once, you fire one bullet. machine guns have been effectively illegal since the 1930s. so we're see a situation in which people want to do something and take a symbolic action, but i think you're absolutely right. there are things that could stem the tide of handgun violence that could be far more eff
